Laser Engraving Photos Is Made Easy In Uganda with Modern Technology

Laser Engraving Photos

Laser engraving photos is one of the most challenging jobs for most engravers in Uganda. And not every laser engraving business around Kampala can produce high quality engraved photos. Why? It’s because creating superb laser engraved photos requires having the right technology and software. Secondly, it requires expertise.

These days, laser engraving photos in Uganda is more accessible, thanks to the availability of modern engraving technology. But still, not every laser engraver can produce excellent results because some laser systems cannot produce quality engraved photos. Secondly, the lack of the right engraving software makes it practically impossible to produce good images. And the right software is costly.

Success in laser engraving photos, therefore, depends on having the right technology and software to do the job. Having the right tools for the job always makes the task much more manageable. Secondly, success also depends upon the expertise and experience the engraver has to work with different materials. Knowledge and experience are so necessary for one to produce high-quality photos.

Are Ugandans So Keen with Laser Engraving Photos?

Ugandans love photos. That’s the truth. The studios across the country, both in urban and rural settings, receive clients.  And photography is undoubtedly a profitable business in Uganda. It’s because human nature is to remember good times and great people in our lives. Photography is one of the most accessible media of capturing great memories of families and friends in all kinds of settings.

However, laser engraving photos has not caught the eyes of many Ugandans. It’s only a few who have known the importance of having their photos engraved. Why? Probably because they haven’t known much about it. Additionally, those who know it consider it a bit expensive.

Why Should You Have Your Photographs Engraved?

Photo Engraving

Laser engraving photos may have several advantages. But let’s share with you just two of them.

  1. Keeping your memories forever

The first reason, which people are embracing laser engraving photos give, is preserving their great memories permanently. Yes, a picture of a loved one permanently engraved on, say, black marble is so valuable because it lasts for life. And by so doing, you keep everlasting memories from generation to generation. Isn’t that great?


On the contrary, digitally printed paper photos last for a short time. It’s hard for such images to last more than three generations. Those that do last long end up losing their quality and clarity with time. Besides, they can quickly get damaged.

  1. Engraved photos are a great gift.

The second reason for laser engraving photos is that such images make a great lasting gift for generations. Let’s put it this way. For instance, if you engrave a wedding photo and give it to a newlywed couple as a gift at their wedding reception, you will have given them a precious and memorable gift in their life. Such a gift has a high perceived value. And it will remain in their memories forever.

If you have always been pondering over what gift to give to a friend, relative or colleague, an engraved photo can do wonders. It’s such a great gift that pleases whoever receives it. It speaks a thousand words.

Which Photos Can You Laser Engrave?

There are quite many photos one can engrave permanently on various materials. These are photos you would wish to preserve for the future generation to see them. Generally, one would like to keep permanently photos filled with great memories of:

♦  Your childhood

♦  School days

♦  Wedding

♦  Friends – these could be people or animals

♦  Moments of happiness

♦  Great people in our lives and

♦  Important events

Which Materials Are Suitable for Laser Engraving Photos?

A single photo can engrave differently from one material to another. The choice of the material to use for laser engraving your photos depends on several factors, i.e. cost, quality of engraving, durability. The most commonly used materials include marble, granite, anodised aluminium, stainless steel, leather and wood.
